485.700 Team Building: Individual and Group Dynamics

Individual and group dynamics are at the core of evidence-based practices. Leaders direct individuals and groups and also the interaction that occurs among multiple groups toward accomplishment of a mission or purpose. Additionally, leaders must come to terms with the concept of self-leadership – which involves personal resilience and methods for building cultures of resilience. The knowledge of how groups and followers function is essential to sound decision making, implementing new concepts, changing direction, solving problems, and motivating others. To acquire this knowledge, students will dissect modern theories and research in individual and group dynamics, identify “fit” and apply accepted principles of dynamics to a work environment. Students will also differentiate between small and large group dynamics, evaluate the role of a group leader, by focusing on issues such as boundaries, group identity, cohesion, conflict, power, group recognition, and intergroup alliances.
